Netflix will regulate its content in India. It swears that's not a bad thing

The company is one of nine streaming platforms that has signed a "code of best practices" that pledges to self-regulate the content they publish online. That includes content that "disrespects the national emblem or national flag" of India, "intends to outrage religious sentiments" and "encourages terrorism or other forms of violence against the State," according to a copy of the code posted online by Indian tech website MediaNama.

Others who have reportedly signed the code include Hotstar, the country's top streaming platform that will soon be owned by Disney (DIS), and Jio Cinema, the platform owned by India's richest man Mukesh Ambani.

CNN Business could not independently verify the code, and the industry body that published it, the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), did not respond to a request for comment.

Netflix (NFLX) confirmed that it had signed the code, but the company downplayed suggestions that it amounts to censorship.
